I recently read a fun beauty tag on Tine of Beautyholics Anonymous’ blog, and wanted to join. The title of the tag was fitting, seeing as I am supposed to be doing something far more important, but significantly less fun. Feel free to tag yourself, and leave a link in the comments!


1. Name a beauty regime that you rarely do?
Waxing is definitely at the bottom of my list. Besides the fact there are faster ways to remove hair, I completely suck at it. I recently bought myself a ‘wax wand’ of sorts, for those hard to navigate areas around the eyebrow. In the end it was a disaster, and all I managed to do was cover myself in wax. Hair was still there, lol.

2. Is washing your make-up brushes something that you do regularly?
Ahhhh, you got me! Truthfully no. I’m gross I know, and I deserve that dirty look you just gave me. Despite my lack of brush cleaning, I only really use two or three of my brushes so that kinda makes it better. Right?? I prefer to apply my foundation with my fingers (clean of course!), and come to think of it that’s probably the reason I don’t use foundation brushes – because I know I don’t have the time to wash them religiously.

3. How long will you last with chipped nail polish?
Not very long. It looks really tacky when they start to chip, so I remove and re-polish again sometimes two or three times a week. I tend to stick to quick dry nail polishes which cuts down on time. Now that I’ve said that though, you will probably run into me on the street sporting scraggly-looking chipped nails. 😛

4. How long will you put off buying/replacing a beauty product, even if you need it?
Typically not long. If it’s a product I regularly use, I don’t like to go without so I might even buy a replacement before I finish the current one. If I happen to see something I love on sale I will pick it up then and there to save in the long run. I’m a Mummy on a budget after all! It’s not uncommon to see 6 bottles of shampoo and conditioner bought on sale, in the bathroom cupboard (I’m not kidding lol!). I hate paying full price for them, they are so expensive!

5. What is your worst beauty habit?
Rubbing the skin under my eyes, and pulling out stray hairs – if you could call that a beauty habit. There’s actually a name for compulsive hair pulling or eating, Trichotillomania. Although by definition, I don’t do it out of stress I do it because I hate coarse little hairs so I pull them out. 

6. Name something non-beauty related that you put off doing all the time?
Filing paperwork. At work I am OCD clean, and I like to have everything stacked neatly and organised, but at home I am usually too tired to want to even look at it. Anyone wanting to volunteer to come over and organise it for me, I will love you forever. 😀

7. When going out somewhere, do you leave getting ready to the last minute?
Flying by the seat of my pants is not my strong point, so if I can help it I don’t leave anything to the last minute. Having kids, two of which are special needs children, things work best when there’s planning involved. Even if it’s just me going out with the Girls. Having said that, I’ve performed some miracles – out the door in five minutes or less… whether I was presentable, well that remains to be said. 🙂

8. Can you commit to spending bans?
YES! I can and I did last year for a full 60 days. And if you can’t tell, I am super proud of my effort. The experience changed me. It was frustrating, but surprisingly nice in many other ways. I learnt the art of DIY – which I think everyone should do! I learnt to appreciate what I already had, and I saved a TON.

9. How organised is your make-up and nail polish collections?
-ish. I have a few, pretty, clear acrylic organisers for lipsticks and things, and a drawer full of tins and boxes to organise my makeup but I go from tidy-to-messy in cycles. I start out more organised than a librarian on crack, then slowly as the weeks pass and I don’t have time to put things back perfectly it gets messy. Then I just get tired of dumpster-diving for my makeup  and clean it again. It’s the circle of life.

    It was lovely reading more about you 🙂 I am the same with organizing, I go from neat and organized to a mess in a day. I always say I’m going to keep on top of it this time.

    Such a lovely read! It’s my first time here and I’m sure to be back.

    I have a bad habit of tugging my undereyes and scratching my eyes like there was no tomorrow if it’s itchy. Really need to stop doing this 🙂

    60 days of spending ban is AMAZING. CLAP CLAP!! 🙂 I wish I can do a 3 month ban 🙂

      Haha, when you figure out a way to stop let me know 😀

      The ban was born mostly out of necessity, I was spending waaaay too much and had to slow down. It’s really not so bad honestly, I would encourage anyone to try! You’d be surprised, and hey, if you cant do it, then you can treat yourself for giving it a go! A very brave thing 😀
